Spy Emerson is an artist iconoclast and creator of the Hook-Up Truck. Her works range in mediums but consistently remain as social engagements reflecting her passion as an activist and humanitarian. She began her arts practice as a "club kid" at the Limelight Nightclub in NYC 1992 (see the film Party Monster for more details) and escaped with her life to Oakland California in 1995 where she began to participate in Burningman as a contributing artist (for the next 20 years). She made music videos for Stones Throw Records, performed with the Czech National Theater, and crashed the Venice Biennale.  She volunteered as a teacher with the unofficial Women and Children's Center in the Calis Jungle refugee camp, and she volunteered as a cook in the early StandingRock protest camp. Most recently she was volunteering outreach in West Oakland homeless encampments as a member of Punks With Lunch. 
Currently Spy Emerson is writing, producing and performing a bi-monthly stage show called Happy Forever: Pagan Matchmaker, the story is of a witch using "Sex Magic" to heal the world. 
Look for her giant sculpture work, and small roll in the smash feature film Sorry To Bother You. 


A chameleon-like ability to flourish simultaneously in multiple art forms marks the Protean presence of Spy Emerson. No stranger to controversy, her installations and public performances create lively attention wherever they turn up. Her creations, lately the subject of national attention and commentary, are always socially acute and with the essential leavening quality of informed playfulness and humor.

"Edward Gibbon, author of the classic work “The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire,” observed that one of the marks that contributed to Rome’s ultimate demise was “obsession with sex and perversions of sex.” He also described the Roman declension as a place where “bizarreness masqueraded as creativity.” 
Both of Gibbon’s assessments apply to the Hook-Up Truck."
